Our Top 10 List:
Our Favourite Countries
[ more Top-10 Lists ]
This list is our own personal top ten based on what we have seen and experienced in our travels. The criteria used to determine this list included natural and man-made attractions, history, food and value for money. With so many things to consider, except for the winner Italy it was not an easy decision to make.
From the spectacular coastal scenery of the Amalfi coast to the history and art in Florence, the food and the language, Italy has it all. We would go back it Italy in an instant.
Although the major cities have the obvious attractions, it was the countryside and especially our time on the island of Corsica that made France one of our top favourites
Right from the start when we arrived in Cairo and headed the wrong way along a one way street, we knew that Egypt was going to be a memorable experience. Despite the heat and traffic, we had a ball. Relaxing along the Red Sea at Dahab was a highlight.
Mostly because of the food, but the culture and people of Thailand are great too.
